Colorado’s first gentleman Marlon Reis is finding his voice
The Denver Post
On a recent afternoon, Colorado’s first gentleman met with a lawmaker, toured a homeless youth shelter and chatted with a pair of women dressed as produce.
Marlon Reis’ back-to-back meetings earlier this week are part of a calendar that has begun to fill since his partner of nearly 18 years, Jared Polis, was elected governor last fall.
“He’s willing to talk to everyone — at length,” said Mark Castleman, a volunteer at the farmers market who was also one of Reis’ high school teachers.
On Tuesday, that meant a conversation with a corn cob and a tomato at the grand opening of the Broomfield farmers market.
“I’m sure, to his aides, he’s a handful to keep on schedule,” Castleman said.
